PICK OF THE WEEK
YOUNG HEARTS RUN FREE No Idle Day No Idle Day is the latest iteration from Young Hearts Run Free, who organise the kind of shows that money can’t buy . This time it’s a small festival in some of Dublin’s most curious and charming spaces. Film-maker Pat Collins will be talking about his work at 7.30pm tonight along with a screening of his short films in the NCH. Then the likes of Bill Drummond, Donal Dineen, Jim Carroll, Siobhan Kane, John Osborne and others will discuss their favourite records. There’s also a late-night party at a secret location.
Tomorrow there’ll be a musical walking tour with surprise guests, while Bill Drummond, author Colin Barrett and singer Niamh McCormack will be taking over Marsh’s Library, followed by an evening music-and-talking session in City Assembly House with Johnny Rogan, Sylvie Simmons, Spook of the Thirteenth Lock (above) and Adrian Crowley. Sunday is Heaven in the Afternoon with Foil, Arms and Hog, Nialler9, Barry McCormack, James Byrne and more surprise guests, with food by Aoife McElwain in Bello Bar. Tickets are ¤60 for the weekend, with proceeds going to the Simon Community. See youngheartsrunfree.ie for details.
